LORD AND RULER
Symbols: The Tablets
Come and redeem us with outstretched
O Lord and Ruler of the House of Israel, who appeared
to Moses in the flame of the burning bush and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come and redeem us with outstretched arm.
O Adonai, et dux domus Israël, qui Moyse in igne
flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum
nos in brachio extento.
The tablets of stone are a picture of the Ten Commandments
given by God to Moses on Mt. Sinai. They may be used to represent the
whole of God's law, the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible,
the Torah), or the entire Old Testament.
